[horde] homedir based on uid and not username

We have our user home directories set up by uid, rather than username.
This allows for usernames to be changed at will, without losing access
to previously received messages or stored files. In other discussions,
we have described this as having a "handle" that is unchanging while the
username and/or domain changes. We even have a number of users with
several usernames associated with the same uid and same homedir.
Is it possible to replicate this in horde? I would think horde would do
initial authentication with the provided username and password, grab the
uid handle, along with any other usernames associated with it, and
finally populate identities with the collected username information.
Looking over horde/config/hooks.php, it looks like we could generate an
internal username based on the uid, but I am still uncertain as to what
is possible. We are still horde newbies, so please be gentle. ;-)
